Conventional medicine plays an important role and most of the time is the first treatment for a couple who for what ever reason cam not conceive after 1 year of unprotected sexual intercourse or can not carry the pregnancy to full term. With the advance of medical technology, conventional medicine has proven record in treating infertility but with some side effects. In this article, we will discuss gamete intrafallopian tube transfer (GIFT) : definition, effects, side effects and risk of conventional treatment.

1. Definition
Gamete intrafallopian tube (GIFT) is simple ART (assisted reproductive technology) technique and defined as placing the mature eggs at the far end of the follopian tube of the female partner together with the male partner sperm.

2. Gamete intrafallopian tube transfer (GIFT)
For a healthy couple with unexplained causes of infertility and after all other conventional treatment are failed, their doctor may suggest gamete intrafallopian tube transfer to maximize the chance of fertility. After the egg are collected through either natural ovulation or other medication induced ovulation, they are replaced at the far end of the fallopian tube laparoscopically together with already prepare male sperm to increase the chance of fertilization. From there the fertilized egg moves to uterus for natural implantation. Since the eggs are placed to the far end of the fallopian tube artificial with the sperm, it increases the risk of multiple birth. GIFT is very expensive and required general anaesthesia.

3. Risks
a) Infection
b) Minor abdominal bleeding
c) Multiple birth
The success rate of gamete intrafallopian tube (GIFT) is 28% and the female partner is required to have at least a healthy fallopian tube.
